The new Facebook-based feature, arriving as a move meant to quell privacy concerns that the social network is blamed for time and again, will now arrive with a revamped log-in screen.

The newly done Log-in screen will then let users select which personal information stored on the social network, such as an email address, birthday or stuff they have "liked" on Facebook, can be accessed by any particular app.

Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg has already announced at Facebook's developer conference in San Francisco on Wednesday that a new version of Facebook's log-in tool, called "log in anonymously" is arriving.

According to him, the new changes would let users control what information they allow third-party apps to see. He also told developers that the tool will make users feel more comfortable whenever logging into apps using Facebook.

"By giving people more power and control, they're going to trust all the apps that we build more, and over time use them more. And that's positive for everyone," Zuckerberg said.
